Answering Common Questions About Shampoo and Conditioner
Posted on October 16 2020
Taking care of your hair is one of the best things you can do for yourself. The thing about hair care, though, is that it can be pretty tricky to perfect. It’s easy to over-wash your hair and strip it of the nutrients that it needs and it’s easy to under-wash it as well which can lead to dirty, greasy hair.
Shampoo and conditioner are two of the things that almost everyone uses on a regular basis. How often you should use it, though, is the question. Some people say to use both every day while others go as far as advocating for the “No ‘Poo” movement. If you have questions about using shampoo and conditioner, read on. Today, we’ll be answering some of the most common questions about shampoo and conditioner that has a lot of people clueless and confused.
Q: How often should I use shampoo and how often should I use conditioner on my hair?
A: That depends on a lot of things like the general weather/climate where you live, how often you go out, and how many other products you use on your hair. If you live somewhere warm, your hair and scalp are more subject to sweat so you’ll need to wash your hair more frequently. The same goes if you spend a lot of time outdoors where your hair is exposed to pollution and if you use a lot of styling products on your hair regularly since doing so can lead to build up. Conditioner, on the other hand, can be used every day unless you have superfine hair that tends to grease up easily.
Q: Should I always use shampoo and conditioner together?
A: No, you don’t need to use shampoo and conditioner together all the time. Shampooing your hair everyday can be harsh but using conditioner every day is fine since it rehydrates and re-moisturizes your hair.
Q: What’s the best shampoo and conditioner for me?
A: Shampoo and conditioner can’t be a “one size fits all” kind of deal. You have to choose your shampoo and conditioner based on your hair type. If you have dry hair, for example, you’ll want to use a moisturizing/hydrating shampoo like the Joico Moisture Recovery shampoo. It’s best to use a shampoo and conditioner from the same brand and the same line to get optimum results. So, if you’re using the shampoo mentioned above, you can follow up with the matching Joico Moisture Recovery conditioner after washing your hair.
Q: I have colored hair, what shampoo should I use?
A: Dyeing your hair another color is fun! Make sure the color lasts by using sulfate-free shampoo like this Color Endure shampoo and conditioner combo or any other sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner product of your choice. For new blondes, look for a purple shampoo and conditioner combo like this to keep your hair from looking brassy.
